Funny that no one so far mentioned (modern) Greek (in this NeaPolitan 
context), where apparently the possessive pronoun(?) is appended to the 
o fílos mou - my friend
énas filos mou - a friend of mine
and see the working of accents in
o ánthropos - the man
o ánthropós mou - my man


gr, Kees.

Neapolitan "mammate"
